Giving the Devil his due!
The further adventures of Sister Rosette, the gun-wielding nun, and Chrono, her demon companion, are chronicled in this second release of episodes from the Chrono Crusade anime series. Here's a quick rundown of the installments contained on this disc:
• Chapter Five: "Militia"
• Chapter Six: "Jewel Witch"
• Chapter Seven: "The Devil"
• Chapter Eight: "Falling Rain"
I actually enjoyed these episodes more than I did the first batch. The
overall tone here is a little darker, and there's a better balance between the
serious and silly elements of the plot (especially in the seventh and eighth
The audio/video presentation is quite pleasing, and is on par with that of the first release. The transfer is very good, although there's just a bit of edge enhancement. The Japanese stereo audio mix is a little too screen-centric (and throwing Pro Logic decoding its way doesn't do much); the English 5.1 dub is quite active, although the voice acting leaves much to be desired. Extras include some production sketches, clean opening/closing animation, an alternate opening sequence for the fifth episode, previews, and another installment of Azmaria's Extra Classes (this time focusing on some of the weapons used in the series).
If you're already a fan, then you should be pleased with this release. If you haven't already given Chrono Crusade a shot—well, what are you waiting for? C'mon, it's got a cute chick with a gun, and that's almost never a bad thing.
